Spiritual care and support

Spiritual care and support

Spiritual care and well-being is an integral foundation of all hospice care. It is provided by all staff in their many and varied ways of caring for you and your family/whānau. These important roles are supported and assisted by our spiritual care coordinator who is present and available to you upon request or may help you to access support in your area.

Hospice offers holistic care to patients, family/whānau and caregivers. It is founded upon attention to your personal, religious, spiritual and cultural values.

Spirituality and culture shape who we are and how we live. Our commitment to Te Tiriti O Waitangi is reflected in our care for whānau and families according to their own unique spiritualities, cultures and faith traditions.

Our Spiritual Care Coordinator will lead or assist with:

• Occasions that require prayers and blessings
• Memorial Services
• Remembrance Services
• Rituals
• Any other occasions
